Farewell 300 

Parting Greeting 

A song is sung, — a long-continued song, 
And oh ! how tender are the Hngering tones 

That echo soft the dream_v stream along, 

And mingle with the notes from leafy thrones. 

Alas ! An aching void has come to stay ! 

These hills all golden with the Autumn glow. 
The crystaled stars and moon in Winter skies. 

The violet vales, adown which Spring brooks flow, 
The Summer bees, the birds, the sunset dyes,— 

These all the tearful chords insistent play. 

The strain is done,— and oh how brief the song! 

But we'll be braJve ! Another hymn we'll raise I 
To those who've sung more melodies belong. 

So Foster-Home, we'll love thee all our days, 
And ne'er through life will we thy trust betray.

History of the Class of 1908 

The history of the class of 1908 is a matter of pride to every 
one of its members. Since we unfurled our "purple and gold" to 
the breezes of '04 has our history been a series of signal triumphs. 

JMany and varied have been our struggles and successes. As 
Freshmen we met in mortal combat the combined forces of the 
Sophomore and Junior class, and although somewhat crumpled 
and torn our colors waved from the button-holes of our gallant 
warriors. But space does not permit to linger on such pleasant 
memories. Suffice it to say that we have not only held our own 
in awful times which try men's souls, be it in the wee hours of 
the night or 'neath the gilded rays of the noon day sun, but have 
successfully assailed the flags of our opponents, whether they 
floated from the topmost branch of the stately oak or from the 
flag staiT of the old historic tower. But we have not always con- 
tended for class honors alone. From our ranks have been drawn 
the leaders of our athletic teams which have gained honor for 

old Bethany on both gridiron and diamond. We have produced 
winners of inter-society debates and "Collegian" banner contests, 
have gained for Bethany her first victory in inter-collegiate ora- 
tory; and have won the prize of the Rhodes scholarship at Ox- 

As Seniors we have been pleased to add to our roll the names 
of Messrs. Gnmes, Dight and Booher, who have joined us for 
the special honor of graduating in the class of 1908. 

We leave the stage of action of our dear Alma Mater with 
heartfelt regret. But whatever we lose of pleasure or advantage 
will be but the gain of our successors, and therefore we bequeath 
to the class of 1909 our robes of Seniorhood and our earnest 
wishes that old Bethany's fostering- care may bring to them all 
the joys that have been ours.

Unto us a child was born. And they called 
his name U. E. Hootnian. And the child grew 
and waxed strong and was fair to look upon. 
And it came to pass when he had advanced to the 
fvtll number of years which is accounted the age 
of a man, he followed closely in the example of 
his father in the tending of sheep and agricul- 
ture. As time wore on, into the heart of this 
well nurtured youth a vision of a fair damsel 
came and all other visions of life faded away. In 
the moonlight one evening he opened his mouth 
and spake to her of serious considerations. She 
answered in low voice, a well favored youth of 
fairer countenance has stolen my heart, and you 
are too late. Mr. Hootman has never been the 
same since. 


Hess Willard is one of the Antedeluvians. 
He does not possess great physical strength and 
giant-like stature, but he makes up for these 
characteristics in his intellectual ability and his 
endless variety of long words. Hess is known 
among the students by his sunny nature and 
jovial and good-humored disposition. He has 
received applause from his fellowmen by the at- 
tempted reformation of his roommate. But he 
has now, however, given up the idea of reform- 
ation and in its stead occupies the greater part of 
his leisure time hunting the inhabiter of his black 


As most of us know Ed., he may be enlisted 
as a joUv good fellow. He has taken a promi- 
nent part in athletics among the different hotels 
(?) of the city. 

Although he does not spend much of his time 
on the athletic field, he is always there when the 
"Bachell Tigers" are on the gridiron or the dia- 
mond, and when the fairest of the fair gaze upon 
him, they cannot but help showing their appre- 
ciation of his athletic ability by casting wreaths 
of laurels at his feet. 



You are looking into the face of a young lady 
Mho is an exception to the usual run of young 
ladies, for to ^liss Shull work is a pleasure and 
biz is drudger}-. If we were empowered with 
the gift of prophecy and could look forward into 
the future, would we see her walking the corridor 
of life with sedate and serious mien Corwin by 
her side? We think not for Corwin never would 
be able to raise the courage and JMiss Shull would 
quietly accept the favors of a more daring suitor. 
However, she is of a genial disposition and popu- 
lar in Phillips' Hall, 


Miss Anna Smith is a young lady of whom 
the Junior class may well be proud. She is small 
but the glance from her eyes and her smile are 
sufficient to collapse the most stony heart. There 
lies a bright future before her. in the cultivation 
of her unmistakable literary talent in both 
poetry and prose. We are afraid, though, that 
the little fellow with the bow will be victorious, 
for Harold's persistency is very often repulsed, 
but in the end he comes off the conqueror. 


Miss Griffith since the graduation last year of 
a certain promising young man has almost gone 
into seclusion. Back and forth from College to 
Hall she walks reserved and quiet, always busy 
and always hurrying with some definite object in 
view. Biz no longer has any attractions and 
work seems to claim her undivided attention. 
May not some one arise and pluck this fair 
creature from such sad reluctance. 



Chester (so called by Miss Hertzel) is a man 
of good repute and is distinguished by the fact 
that he is a nephew of our honored President. 
As a man of affairs he is actively connected with 
the Y. M. C. A.. Christian Endeavor and Volun- 
teer Band. We are sorry to note, liowever that 
so early in his career Mr. Dunn, by his cunning 
art, has stolen one maiden's heart. For one after- 
noon on the corridor jNIiss Hertzel said: "Yes, 
Chester, I am sure that I could be happy with 


Mr. Jarrett is an athlete and Prof, of the 
Young Men's Vocal Qub. Upon his arrival he 
was a good student but he has laid this aside and 
now devotes all of his time to his favorite au- 
thor, ''Scott.'' Almost at any hour of the night 
one may hear issuing forth from Mr. Jarrett's 
room that beautiful ballad ( ?) composed by him- 
self, " Save the Boys." 


Ouietlv and peacefully Mr. Zimmerman goes 
through life seemingly without a care and with- 
out a "worry. He established his reputation as a 
man of honor and moral character in his Junior 
oration upon "Divorce." He beseechingly pleaded 
for peace in domestic relations, as well as to be 
established as an everlasting foreign policy. Mr. 
Zimmerman has chosen the ministry for his life 
work and we hope that his policy of peace may 
win him much success in the future. 


p. M. BABER. 

;Mr. Baber. more familiarlv kiio\vn as "Pow." 
has won great distinction as class orator and even 
greater distinction as class "scrapper." Mr. Baber 
is verv reserved and not given to much levity, 
for this reason he lends much dignity to his class. 
We are glad to see that he is musically inclined 
and we hope that he, with his "Coriiett," will 
derive much pleasure together in the future.

Miss Gray was born an uncertain number of 
years ago. She is at all times modest, unassum- 
ing and quiet and will not even express her opin- 
ion ex'cepfwhen asked speciallv bv Mr. Vaideii. 
There have been times in her life when the bonds 
of love were very strong upon her, for she was 
continually thinking of "Moore" biz. Now, how- 
ever, Mr. Vaiden has full sway and we are glad 
to see that the little fellow with the arrows has 
been so successful. 


Dr. Bennett is one of the wise old owls of his 
class. His main desire is to be an Evangelist. 
While in school Raleigh has not had much asso- 
ciation with the fair co-eds. Let us hope he will 
do better in later years. If he does not, we fear 
he is doomed to spend his years in blissful soli- 


We know this man hailing- from Michigan as 
Riddle, although he is not hard to solve. 

John is a man of great intellectual power and 
athletic ability. He has made good on the basket 
ball and base ball teams, and no doubt would 
have greatly strengthened the foot ball team last 
fall if it had not been for a serious accident which 
befell him. John, is a nice boy, a man to be relied 
upon, and a man of self importance. 

For further write up, "ask the man." 


Being a chip off the old block he is more 
usually known as "Scotty." Even when Bryon 
was yet in swaddling clothes his parents had 
fondest hopes of their little son some day being a 
graduate of prehistoric Bethany. 

But Bryon is out of school this term on ac- 
count of his health. We all hope for his speedy 


Miss Jessie Smith is a student. She is noted 
for making high grades and being the best in her 
classes. With all her study, though. Miss Smith 
never has the blues. She is always pleasant and 
extremely sensible and well poised. She is 
always willing to face with you the hard practical 
problems of life and give you the best possible 



England has produced many illustrious sons 
and niany who will rise and do honor to her 
name. We are hoping- that Herbert Smith ma\- 
not be an exception to this rule. It was on a 
bright spring morning a number of years ago 
that he first made his appearance upon our col- 
lege grounds. Foot sore and wear}', tired and 
warm from his seven mile tramp, he made the 
remark that it was a very 'ot day. He has won 
great distinction on the athletic field by the intro- 
duction of his national game "cricket." Mr. 
Smith during his summer's evangelizing in the 
wilds of ^^'est Virginia came across a "Faire 
Ladiae" who we hope will be the means of Amer- 
ica and Eneland forming a close and everlasting 


Worth, more commonly known as "Yancum," 
is a man of good repute and one looked upon by 
his fellow students as being "a real man." In 
college life, Worth is popular, both in society and 
with the ladies. 

Mr. "Hold them off with one hand" is an 
athlete from start to finish. Under his coaching, 
Bethan}' had a foot ball team last fall which she 
could well be proud of. 

Surely, we e.xpress the sentiment of all by 
saying that we certainly regret his departure 
from our midst. 

He will no doubt make good in the days to 
come as a newspaper correspondent. 


Miss Pitman is rarely ever seen, but all 
understand her ability as a student and her power 
to accomplish successfully everything that she 
undertakes. She holds herself strictly aloof from 
the advances of the young men and even the dar- 
ing little Cupid finds it impossible to penetrate 
the iron-clad e.xterior. Miss Pitman, though, is 
a Junior of whom the class nia> justly be proud 
and she will in the future as in the past, do honor 
to '09. 



Roy Miller stands out prominently before us. 
He is both an athlete and a scholar. When he 
was somewhat younrj he won the gold medal as 
the best athlete in school. Now that he is older, 
he has settled down and is satisfied with being 
catcher on the College base ball team. He is 
bright and witty in his conversation and very 
polite in his manner. All of the young ladies 
like Roy Miller and how could they help it when 
he treats all with such good feeling. 

C. B. DUNN. 

( See Chester V. Dunn write up. Except Biz 
qualifications.) ' 


"I am from Kentucky State College." Mr. 
Dabne)' volunteered this information as he was 
alighting from the hack upon his entrance into 
Bethany. We soon after learned that he was a 
prominent member of the choir in Kentucky 
State, we are now able to vouch for ourselves, 
for his unusual singing abilities. Our choir here 
is very incomplete unless it is graced by Mr. Dab- 
nev's pre.sence. Mr. Dabney is very courteous 
and pleasant and we feel that he reflects credit 
upon his southern parentage. 



There is always a ponderous question in the 
life of every young woman, but Miss Marshall 
has seemingly decided it with great ease, for the 
"Riddle" has long since been solved. She is verv 
demure and at times shy, but she sent away more 
than one unhappy suitor in utter confusion. Her 
motto is "variety is the spice of life." or freelv 
translated, there is safety in numbers. JNIiss 
Marshall has great dramatic ability. Very few 
young women are so talented and have such 
grace and ease upon the stage. 


Miss Stevenson came to us this year with 
colors flying, under the cognomen "The Art 
Teacher." For a time the air was blue around 
small groups of boys, each of whom were giving 
conclusive arguments why he should be the one 
to make the first date. But alas ! "The New Art 
Teacher" had a mind of her own and did not 
delay to do the choosing. Roy Miller was the 
fortunate object of her smiles and all other com- 
petitors suddenly faded away. Miss Stevenson 
is very pleasant and "Art" is by no means the 
best of her accomplishments. 


Miss Mabel Mercer, the fairest of the fair, 
With light blue eyes and wavy auburn hair. 
She has had many and many a beau. 
But none with Duty can compare. 
Miss Mercer is always pleasant and bestows 
upon her friends the sweetest of smiles. We 
always look upon her as doing the right thing at 
the right time and of course to associate her 
with even the thoughts of breaking Biz rules 
would be entirely out of place. We certainly 
sympathize with Miss Mercer in the fact that 
Mr. Duty will graduate this year and to put it 
in her own words, "I don't know how I will get 
along without him." 




Harold is a man you may really call a 
genius. When he first came to Bethany he 
missed the creek, after bluffing; his fellow stud- 
ents by carrying an invisible pistol. He is a 
good man with the foils, a fine student in Span- 
ish, a reformer of languages, Esperanto being 
introduced at Bethany under his supervision, and 
in fact he may be called "Diamond Dick" the 

Mr. Cadwell is somewhat of a ladies' man, 
even though he is troubled with a strange scanti- 
ness of hair upon the top of his head. He has 
of late shown his manhood by giving up the 
"widowed" thoughts of love, which fired his 
heart at a previous time and we are glad to say 
that we have hopes of his complete recovery if 
he still continues to keep from his heart thoughts 
of such a serious nature.

Junior Class History 

From the North, the South, the East, the West, the)' 
gathered, fair women and Ijrave men. West Virginia, Oliio, 
Pennsylvania, \'"irginia, Kentucky, Michigan, Canada and Eng- 
land, have yielded their best to swell the ranks of the class of 
1909, until now, twenty-four (24) strong, we rally round the red 
and white of our standard, proud to be called the Junior class of 
Bethany College. 

Like Washington of old, we are ever, "First in peace, first 
in war, first in the hearts of our countrymen." 

I shall not weary you by relating our many conquests. It 
is sufficient to sav that we have never lost a battle, and the strong 

arms which support the red and white are amply competent for 
the task. 

We have not developed our physical prowess merely, but 
have taken long strides towards mental superiority. Our Junior 
play, the first play given in years, was a grand success, and only 
one more proof of our versatility as a class, 

'og boasts the largest number of girls that has ever reached 
the Junior rank in college. We are proud of our past — proud of 
our progress, and proud of the fact that when the year is over 
and we are Seniors, the name will rest becomingly on each and 
every member of the present Junior class !

Sophomore Class History 

This is the tale of the Sophomore class 

Of brothers and sisters true. 
Standing together in foul or fair weather 

For gallant gold and blue. 

Happ}- and free passed our Freshman days, 

Till we hung .our colors bright 
From the topmost peak of the college tower 

And bravely defended our right. 

Here we have come from the East and West, 

Lured by the mystical call 
Ringing afar from Wisdom's star, 

That draws and holds t;s all. 

Soon we were bound by friendship's ties 

And learned to work as one, 
Alma Mater claimed our love. 

And our college career was begun. 

This year we've won the victory 

In many a stormy bout, 
With Juniors help we conquered the Fresh 

And wore the Seniors quite out. 

Our members excel in classic halls. 
On gridiron and diamond they're seen, 

From pulpit to piano their talents range, 
And all the wav between. 

True to our class we'll be true to the world. 

So may our records be bright, 
Striving ever for "Facta non verba" 

Together we'll fight a good fight.

Freshmen Class History 

On a bright September day, 1907, a determined body of 
students destined to succeed, crossed the threshold of Bethany 
College. Although a little green at first, the hayseeds were soon 
brushed from their clothes by the hazing of the obliging Sophs 
and Juniors. Then, realizing the truth of the old maxim, "In 
union there is strength," the illustrious class of '11 by organized 
efforts soon put a stop to these various pranks. At the first 
meeting of the class a slight rasping sound was heard at the door. 
Everyone within became intensely eager for the fray. All busi- 
ness was suspended and with one accord they rushed upon those 
Sophs and it was not long before they had taught them to hold 
in respect so dominant a factor in the life of Bethany College. 

For several months everything remained quiet and thinking 
that the flame of class spirit in the Freshmen had burned so low 
that it was no more, the Sophs noisily paraded a flag bearing the 
figures '10 one bright morning after chapel on the corridor. The 
Freshies, not willing to be trampled upon in such a manner, 
immediately attacked them. And in the fierce struggle that 
ensued the Sophs wisely managed to hide what little of the flag 
that remained. 

A short period after this the freshman flag was hoisted in 
a large sycamore tree on the campus. The Sophs and Juniors 
becoming greatly incensed at so defiant an act, attacked the small 
but brave body guarding the tree. Although the attacking party 
greatly outnumbered the defenders, this attack was met unflinch- 
ingly. For hours the battle was waged fiercely. The ground 
was strewn with forms of wrestlers bespattered with mud. The 
Senior hospital corps were kept busy carrying away the wounded 
on stretchers. And, rather than have so many injured, the bat- 
tle was called a draw. 

The Freshmen fought hard and without a dnubt had the bat- 
tle continued the flag would still have floated calmly and 
supremely in the breeze. . 

In the intellectual world, as well as in the physical world, the 
Freshman class have maintained a high standing and feel that 
the honor of Bethany will be successfully upheld by the class of 
nineteen hundred and eleven.

The Fraternities of Bethan}' College have estabhshed a 
supreme body which consists in three men chosen from each 
of our three Fraternities. 

The object of this Senate or High Tribunal is to promote 
as far as possible amicable feelings between the Fraternities 
and to settle all grievances, should any arise. The greatest 
achievement which this Senate has accomplished has been to 
institute a common pledge day for all Fraternities and formulate 
rules governing the pledging of men. Formerly, much difficully 
and dissatisfaction arose over the lack of system in pledging. 
Xew men were not given time to make their selection from the 
standpoint of preference and Fraternity men were not allowed 
sufficient time to coolly look over the field and pick out the best 

The new rules obviate all of these difficulties and the 
Fraternities have all united in the belief that the most system- 
atic way of pledging, and the way that gives to all the same 
chance is the best way and the most satisfactory to all con- 


1. No man is to be approached in regard to fraternities 
or given any fraternity literature until he has matriculated in 
the College. 

2. No man who enters during the fall term is to be invited 
to join any fraternity until November 27th. No man who enters 
the winter term can be invited to join until February 25th. No 
man who enters the spring term can be invited before May 22nd. 
These dates shall be known as "Invitation Days." 

3. The invitation shall be presented in writing without any 

4. All answers shall be mailed not sooner than three days 
after date of invitation which shall be known as pledge day. 

5. Between invitation day and pledge day no fraternity man 
is to hold conversation with any non-fraternity man regarding 
fraternity matters. 

6. No man shall be approached on fraternity questions or 
given any fraternity literature from time he enters town until 
matriculation day.

The Students' Volunteer Band of Bethany 

The organization was eiTected on the 14th of February, 
1906, during a visit of C. B. Titus, of China. 

The aims of the band as set forth by the constitution are— 
"(a) To study matters pertaining to our work as missionaries 
in the foreign field ; ( b.) to aid spiritual and intellectual growth ; 
(c) to create and foster a missionary spirit among our fellow 
students, thereby encouraging others to become volunteers for 
foreign work." 

During the present school year considerable advancement 
has been made along the lines indicated by the above purposes. 
The band has met every week for spiritual renewal and study of 
the great achievements of missionaries. During- the year it has 
held very interesting rallies at FoUansbee and Steubenville, and 
has brought the claims of foreign work to the attention of the 
students of the college and a number have decided to give their 
lives to this greatest of all calhngs. The band has shown its zeal 
in missionary affairs by its w'ork of taking the lead in making 
Bethanv Church a living link. To this end it has given $200 
and also one of its members to become the living link of the . 
church. Bro. Hedges, recently appointed by the F. C. M. S. to 
go to Africa, is to join old Bethany in living union with the 
vast heathen world. We rejoice greatly in the privilege of hav- 
ing one of our members armed and ready for the work of God 
in darkest Africa. As a result we shall press on with increased 

faith that our cause is God's and with a greater determination to 
present it to our fellow students.

The School of Music 

"The man that hath no music in himself, 
Nor is not mov'd with concord of sweet sounds, 
Is fit for treasons, stratcg-ems and spoils. 

HUS the Bard of the Avon paid his 
respects to the musical barbarian long 
centuries ago ; thus also say we of to- 
day, and forthwith proceed to inculcate 
the heaven-descended art into whoso- 
ever is minded to escape the poet's 
dark ban. 

Since, however, among twentieth 
century inen, strategenis and spoils at 
least seem to have lost much of their 
objectionable character, the gentle art 
of evoking concords of sweet sounds 
has largely become the prerogative of 
the gentler sex. Hence you see them 
with the regularity of the figures of the 
btrassburg clock file in and out of the room at the extreme north- 
east end of the college. The dashy, brilliant maiden, making the 
\yalk ring with a trifle too Amazon like fervor; the demure 
little miss tinkling gently and sweetly; the plain, neutral plod- 
dnig girl, whose music, too, is a trifle'plain and neutral, perhaps, 
but who, most likely, will do her share of the world's work 
while her brilliant sister scintillates and effervesces into hifalutin' 
nothingness — and so on, ad finitum. they come making music 
each after her own kind, learning occult 'facts of a theory that 
like most theories has so very little to do with practice, wrestling 

with names so obstinate, that even in their American edition 
they are likely to give one a fit of aphasia. 

At the other extreme end of the College, in fact even be- 
yond that extreme, in the building devoted to the more natural 
needs of the co-eds. is located, incongruously enough, the vocal 
department. There voices are subdued, enhanced, filed, ground 
to the queen's taste. There, sounds the most inhuman, human 
ears have ever heard emanate at all hours of the day; sounds 
lugubrious, jubilant, doleful, ecstatic— you dispute with yourself 
whether you are approaching a private clinic or an institution 
for the mentally disorganized. But hear! Now a voice swells 
out as though it were soaring straight into heaven. It rises 
and falls, it waves and wanes, it tugs at our heart strings, it 
seems to open up the very sluices of our being, ah ! not in vain 
did the poet of the Emerald Isle sing : 

"Music ! Oh. how faint, how weak. 

Language fades before thy spell. 

Why should feeling ever speak 

When thou canst breathe her soul so well." 

Breathe her soul, indeed, in this material sodden age of 
ours ! Truly music has its mission. iMay she long continue, the 
gentle muse to weave her subtle influences among the barren 
realities of life.

Synopsis of Play 

a 3'Oting" gentleman, prob- 
able heir to a rich landed 
proprietor, Brisemouche, 
has just returned to the 
latter's chateau, after an 
absence of three years. 
During this time he had 
made the tour of the 
world. .At the moment of 
his return,, he iinds that 
Louise, a young lad}' whom he had fervently admired, had been 
for some years the wife of the Baron De La Glaciere, living in 
the neighborhood of Brisemouche's chateau. 

The uncle and nephew are invited to the mansion of the 
baron. Prosper not only recognizes it as the old home of Louise, 
but is surprised to find the principal sitting room in precisely the 
same arrangement of furniture as when he was last there — the 
favorite suitor of Louise. He even observes that the statuette 
of Flora still stands on its bracket, and that its companion 
statuette, accidentally broken about that time, has never been 
replaced. While he is lost in wonder Louise enters. He refers 
to past times, and seeks to reawaken the old flame in the breast 
of the beautiful lady. But she at once checks his ardor, telling 
him that she is married to a man whom she respects and loves. 
Prosper then accuses her of inconstancy — in having led him to 
suppose that she loved him. and then, without a word of ex- 
planation, breaking off all communication with him. She replies 
that after they last parted, she placed a note for him, as usual, 
in the statuette of Flora. To which note he had never replied ; 
and she, taking offence at this slight, and learning soon after 
that he, Prosper, had left for a tour of the world, acted on the 
advice of her relatives, and became the wife of Baron De la 
Glaciere, and was well satisfied with the match. 

It was now Prosper's turn to explain. He said that upon 
leaving her presence on the evening referred to, he found two 
gentlemen on the lawn gazing up at the window. Demanding 
their business, he received impudent replies, and the result was 

two duels, in the last of which he was so severely wounded, that 
he kept his room for months. The cause of the duel rendered it 
necessary to keep it a profound secret. Consequently the lady 
had never heard of it. As Prosper had invalided, could not call 
at Louise's house, the note was probably still in the Flora, where 
it had been placed three years ago. The thought at once struck 
the two whilom lovers, and they made a rush for the Flora. 
Louise to destroy the gushing proof of her girlish love. Pros- 
per to use it to favor his suit with a young lady for whom he 
had conceived an attachment. From this moment, the main in- 
terest of the play attaches itself to the attempts made by Louise, 
Prosper and Suzanne, a cousin of Louise's, to gain possession 
of the scrap of paper. After many times finding his efforts baf- 
fled. Prosper at last gets possession of it, and as he thinks, suc- 
cessfully hides it. Indeed, so certain is he that Suzanne cannot 
find it, that he tells her it is in one of the two rooms in which 
his curiosities — the spoils of his travels — are kept. Suzanne not 
only tells him that she will find it, but vows that she will burn it. 
When Louise is informed by Suzanne where the scrap of paper 
is hid. she joins in the hunt. L^nfortunately the baron conies to 
the locked door. Louise, terrified at the thought of being found in 
Prosper's apartment, hides, and Suzanne at last allows the baron 
to enter. The latter has begun to grow jealous of Prosper, 
owing to certain suspicious acts which he had observed in rela- 
tion to the scrap of paper, and Suzanne, to screen Louise, hints 
to the Baron that Prosper is her lover, but that he has not treated 
her properly. The baron takes fire at this — will not listen to 
reason — and vows that he will make Prosper marry her. This 
adds another tangle to the already tangled skein. 

Mixed up with this principal plot, is an amusing interplot, 
in which an old maid, Zenobie, tries to get young Anatole for a 
husband. The strange fortunes of the scrap of paper keep 
everything lively until at last Prosper actually burns it. But not 
before through its instrumentality the flame of love has touched 
his heart, and he becomes engaged to Suzanne, to wdiose in- 
genuit\- and good offices it is owing that great mischief v^'as not 
caused by the simple scrap of paper. 





Views of Bethany 



There is a spot where winter screens 
The rolling hills and gurgling- streams 
With airy, fairy, feathery sheens — 

With feathery sheens. 
Where starlit skies with crystal gleam. 
And moon and earth with transport seem 
To hail the glorv of One Supreme : 

'Tis Bethany! 'Tis Bethany! Old Bethany! 


There is a spot where autumn leaves 

In myriad tints bedeck the trees, 

And golden vines swav in the breeze — 

Sway in the breeze. 
Where evening zepiiyrs o'er the hills 
Bring music from the ripping rills. 
And nature knows the rapturous thrills ; 

'Tis Bethany! 'Tis Bethany! Old Bethany! 


There is a spot where Spring delays 

To take her course to other ways, 

And tree and shrub respond her praise — 

Respond her praise. 
\^''here downy sward and violet blue, 
And columbines of varied hue 
In reverence court the evening dew ; 

'Tis Bethany ! 'Tis Bethanv ! Old Bethanv ! 


There is a spot where Summer days 
Are warm and light with golden rays. 
And vale and hill are all ablaze — 

Are all ablaze. 
\\'here cosy nooks and lovelv fens, 
Where limpid falls and fern}' glens 
Are better far than priceless gems; 

'Tis Bethanv! 'Tis Bethanv! Old Bethanv'

Collegian Contest Banner 

For many years the Bethany Collegian was far from up to 
the standard of a good college paper and it seemed that no im- 
provement or change could be made in it from year to year. In 
many cases the editors were not interested in the Collegian and 
did not attempt its improvement, but more often it was the fault 
of the students who could not be induced to write for it. They 
could not be blamed to a great extent, for the paper was inferior 
and no inducement was offered for their articles. The manager 
and editors of i9o6-'o7 were the first to awaken to a realization 
that the students were willing and what they needed was some 
incentive to spur them on to literary efforts. 

The Collegian Contest I5anner was at this time brought for- 
ward, having been donated by Geo. T. Oliver and Mrs. Main. 
The idea sprang from the fertile brain of the manager and has 
proved itself a blessing to the Bethany Collegian. The Banner 
was held in the hands of the editorial staff during the first year 
and the three societies contested for it, making as many points 
as possible each month, which were counted to their credit and 
annoimced in each issue. The contest grew very exciting and 
the Collegian was a far better paper than it had been in its his- 
tory. Thus the advent of the Collegian Contest Banner has 
brought a new era in our college paper and it is to be hoped that 
the succeeding editors, during years to come, will hold as high 
the standard of excellence which our Collegian holds at the pres- 
ent time.

Owing to the late opening of College, the preliminary train- 
ing was delayed, and the .start was made more strenuous than 
usual. With three days work and one signal practice the team 
met and defeated Scio by the score of 23 to o. This early vic- 
tor}- gave promise of a good season and candidates became more 
numerous. Good hard work put the team in shape for the next 
game with Muskingum, which was won hy the score of 6 to o. 
The touchdown was the result of a double pass from Yance\' to 

Next came Franklin College, and they, too, met defeat by 
the score of 44 to o. Capt. Chapman's long end runs and Yan- 
cey's punting were the features of the game. The game was to 
have been of twenty-five minute lialves, but Franklin had to catch 
a train, so the game Avas called after 28 minutes of actual play. 

With very little practice the team journeyed to Pennsylvania 
to meet the sturdy team of W. & J. The score at the end of the 
first half was 17 to o in favor of the Red and Black, but the 
Green and White had fought valiantly and went back to the fray 
with renewed energy. Time after time they held W. & J. for 
downs and forced them' to punt. 

Our back field played a great game and is the peer of any 
we saw play. On a forward pass, Filson fumbled but "Chapie'" 
was there to guard such things. He grabbed the pigskin and 
with Yancey interfering, he made the first score against W. & J. 
Although the score was 31 to 6 against us. it does not show the 
real merits of the game. The spectators Avere kept in expect- 
ancy and excitement all the time. Bethany's strong defensive 
play and good ofifense was a surprise to all. 

The team then traveled to Marietta. The continuous rain 
made the field a sea of mud. It was hard to recognize the mem- 
bers of either team. Marietta's excess weight (25 pounds to the 
man ) told in the heavy going and we lost 11 to o. 

Determined that this should be the last defeat, the team put 
on e.xtra energ}- and took the big team of Wheeling Ex-Collegians 
into camp by the score of 26 to o. 

Then, alas for the management, our team tackled the bunch 
from West N'irginia Wesleyan. It was an oft day. The boys 
couldn't get to going right, so after scoring once in the first half 
on a touch down by Kemp, they played safe and kept tha 
"rowdies" from getting close to the coveted goal. The final 
score of 5 to o greath- underestimates the ability of the two 
teams. We shoidd have won by at least 40 points. Two long 
runs b}- Chapman and Yancey, Kemp's defensive playing and 
Uhl's handling of punts were the only features of the game. 

The surprise of the season came when Wesleyan refused to 
pay us any of the money guaranteed. Students threw cabbage, 
mud and rocks at the team and hooted our gray haired professor 
until the police ran the "muckers'" back to their holes. 

The Thanksgiving game was pla\ed with the strong Y. M. 
C. A. team of Parkersburg, and residted in another victory for 
Bethany. The score of II to 2 shows that hard work was re- 
quired. The first score was made near the close of the first half 
Bethany got the ball on her own lo-yard line. A fake kick was 
tried and Yancey carrying the ball ran 100 yards for a touch- 
down. Captain Chapman put up great interference for him. 
Another score was added in the second half by J. Giapntan 
getting a fumbled punt and running 35 yards for the last score 
of the game and the season. The whole team played faultless 
ball and each man deserves special credit. Yancey's long run and 
punting, Capt. Chapman's interference and Kemp's vigorous de- 
fensive play were the particular features of the game. 

The Parkersburg people were captured by the gentlemanly 
pla-\ and conduct of the team and treated them to all the good 
things of the town. 

Our team was strictly a student team, captained by a senior, 
managed h\ a sophomore and coached by a junior. It was the 
best team Bethany has ever had. Two games lost and six won. 
It will long be remembered.

Tlie team of '08 closed the season by defeating W. V. U. 
Tliis victory gave to Bethan)- the championship of West Virginia. 

Five games were won and five lost. All the defeats came 
on the trips and the victories at home, liethanv has never been 
defeated on the home floor. The victory over the fast Belmont 
team, of East Liverpool, showed that our team would put up a 
good race in the Central Basket Ball League. George Hurt 

proved an excellent captain and played the best game of his 

Frank McEvoy showed his ability as a manager as well as 
a plaver. He is the onlv manager in the college who has made 
money on the season. 

Two better players would be hard to find than "Smiles" and 
George. "Shortv" developed very fast under coaching and 
plaved a consistent game at center. 

Lewis is the best guard we have ever had. Energetic and 
determined, he sticks to his opponents like a leech. He was elected 
bv a unanimous vote to captain the team of 'og. 

Linville and Duke took turns at playing the other guard. 
"Liny" was always in the game and proved a valuable player. 
Duke was the fastest player on the team and will make a record 
in the game with a little more experience. Dight was first sub. 
When not plaving he officiated and gave satisfaction both at home 
and a\\'ay. 

We are justly proud of our champion team.

The team of '07 made the best record of any base ball team 
in the history of the College. 

Owing to the fact that the Kodak goes to press earlier than 
usual, there is little that can be said about the team of 1908. 
We predict a successful record for it, as the first game played 
was a one-sided victory. 

Worth Yancey was elected to captain the team, but he 
resigned and Wayne Long was selected to take up the leadership. 
He is a worthy successor to "Yance" and has already proven his 
ability and usefulness as a captain. With him, Jones and Lewis 
to do the spit-ball act, Bethany has a trio of pitchers hard to beat. 

Captain Long is the premier pitcher of the State. He is the 
best one who has ever pitched for the college. Curves, speed, 
control and head work are at his command. We are all justly 
proud of him. 

Here's luck and success to Capt. Long and his team.

To The Team 

They rallied again to the standard. 
They fought for the colors and bled; 
They gave back the lie to the quitters 
Who hinted athletics were dead ; 
Thev gallantly worked for old Bethany. 
And struggled her name to redeem. 

Let them say what the\- will, 

We are proud of her still, 

And we offer a toast. — 

"To the Team !" 

For coach we had Worthington Yancey ,- 
And he worked like "original sin ;" 
And the whole student body behind him 
Gave the backing we needed to win. 
Our contests may not be of moment. 
And yet they are more than they seem, 
For our men are true gold, 
They were not bought or sold. 
So we give you this toast, — 
"To the Team !" 

Let us gather about on the campus, 

And cheer as we did in the past ; 

The\ did their work well on the gridiron, 

And stayed in the game to the last ; 

And their playing surpassed in its cleanness 

The sport of a faculty dream. 

So let us turn out 

And join with a shout. 

In a rousing Rah ! Rah ! 

"To the Team !"

Quiet Life 

I stood upon the mountain side 

Wliose summit seemed to reach the skies, 
And turning to the plain below 

A fairer scene there met my eyes. 

The mists, like curtains, rising fast 
Revealed the beauty of the land 

^^■hich seemed so peaceful, bright and fair 
As fanned by some strong, magic Hand. 

Far down the vale a winding stream 

Seemed glad to leave it? mountain home, 

And glided swiftly on its way 

In haste to reach the Ocean's foam. 

Beyond, were woods and meadows green — 

To all a welcome, cool retreat, 
Where weary hearts could find repose 

Far from the busy, nois}- street. 

And all day long the golden grain 
Bowed gently as the breeze went by. 

And caught the shimmer of the sun 

That filled with gladness earth and sky. 

Behind, the frowning mountains stood 
And higher yet they seemed to tower 

While soon, too soon ! the perfect Day 
Drew near the 'witching evening hour. 

Till rays of light like bars of gold 
Were closing fast the gates of Day, 

And thus the vision from niv eyes 
In evening's shadow passed away. 

Full many a da}- since then has fled 
And now the Autumn Queen is nigh, 

And robed in gold and crimson hues 
She flings her banner to the sky. 

But still the lesson shall be mine — 
Which Nature always doth impart — 

And this it is : A Humble Life 
Alone shall knoi^' a peaceful heart. 

And on the heights the soul shall speak 
And point with well-directing hand — 

Go down into the vales below 
And take possession of the land. 


A Quiet Life" — Continued 

What says the great Matinean bard — 
Than whom no truer poet sings ? 

" 'Tis tliiiie beneath a humble roof 
To far surprass the lives of kings!" 

Eventful lives find little peace 
And close in wildest discontent 

But like a calm, bright summer day 
The lives of lowly men are spent. 

For thev have heaven's richest boon — 
The matchless gift — sweet peace of mind- 

Which many a poor, distracted soul 
Seeks o'er the world in vain to find. 

Let those who seek for fame beware! 

The House of Wealth lias ample room— 
And what we term a montiment 

Is but another name for tomb. 

'Tis better far to shun the crowd 
With all its care and noisy strife, 

For oft the graves of highest hopes 
Are found far up the Heights of Life. 

And though my soul may never taste 
The draughts of sweet, undying Fame 

I know, in life, than doing good 
There is no grander, nobler aim. 

O ! Peace of mind ! sweet Peace of mind ! 

No joy on earth exceeding this! 
Deprived of which, we ne'er shall find 

The substance of all earthlv bliss. 

Then let me lead a quiet life. 
And in Repose find highest joy, 

For here is Pleasure crowned with Peace, 
Nor marred, nor blighted with alloy. 

And oh ! when life at last shall close. 

As on its ebbing tide Fm borne — 
"Twill only seem as though I slept 
And wakened to a brighter morn. 

Heinrich Schell Lobingier. 
October 27th, 1871. 


The Elucidation of Bi 

The first word in the Bethany vocabulary that the callow 
freshman hears is one that shocks his sensibilities, but in a short 
time it is his watch-word, the object of his fondest hopes, some- 
where, somehow, he becomes impressed with the idea that to 
go on "biz" is necessary to his social standing and to the success 
of his college career. 

The first Sunday in Bethany biz notes, real and bogus, are 
brought by the dozen to Phillip's hall and excited girls are hurry- 
ing from room' to room to find out, often from whom their notes 
come, whether or no the affixed signatures are genuine and of 
what character the writers are. 

Sunday night arrives, the old bizites go early to see the 
new ones come in. Mary and George come in first, taking a 
back seat in the biz corner, closely followed by Kirk with a new 
girl (of course), Mr. McClary comes in the wrong door and 
looks sadly around as if for a missing friend. 

Simday evening after Sunday evening pass, biz suffers 
many changes, but at last it settles down into a reasonable state 
of certainty. Cases that every one thought would be serious, 
suddenly were no more and were superseded by others still 
more interesting and seemingly permanent. 

Spring, with all its charms, steals over the old Bethany hills 
and one beautiful Sunday morning iMabel is seen riding joyfully 
to Chapel Hill for Duty's sake. 

As the evenings grow longer, Alice and Roy begin their 
regular promenade and "on the campus and corridor light whisp- 

erings are heard at night fall and laughter, the pleasant betrayer 
of the girl hidden in a secluded nook. 

There is no doubt that many of the Bethany cases prove to be 
lasting and that many more are as fleeting as the hours. But 
la}ing these two extreme cases aside with the jokes and laughter 
that the}' excite, we realize the fact that there are many Bethany 
students, who leave this "historic" place "heart whole and fancy 
free", but who under the auspices of biz have formed true col- 
lege friendships — friendships never to be forgotten. 

"Friendship above all ties doth bind the heart. 
And faith in friendship is the noblest part." 

Friends in college have more in common than almost any- 
where else, the}- see each other in all the phases of their life, they 
gain inspiration from the same professors, they work and th^y 
play side by side, sharing alike in joy and sorrow. 

jMany a young man or woman who Has never had congenial 
associates at home finds new pleasures awaiting them in the 
atmosphere of comradeship that pervades the new world, which 
they are eagerly entering. To such associations many a one 
attributes new and high ideals of true manhood and womanhood 
that influence them through life. Many happ}' memories cluster 
round the sacred walls of the old college, and live in the hearts 
that though far away from their Alma Mater and from each 
other are still true to the bonds of friendship's devotion forged 
on the "Banks of the old Bufifalo," 



Pictures of Pictures 

Picture a home in a Southern cUme 
Picture a cottage with ivy entwined, 
Picture a table set for two, 
Jess and Bagby, to each other now true. 
Picture the happiness now reigning' there 
Picture Chapie'at home in despair, 
Pining- away with no hopes fair 
Is a picture no artist can paint. 

Picture Grimes giving an oration, 
Settling great questions of the nation, 
Tommy jNlercer Chapel attending. 
Miss Fettv her dignitv unbending. 
President Cramblett with a cigarette 
Is a combination we haven't seen yet 
And when we do you all can bet 
It's a picture no artist can paint. 

Picture the Sophomores with Trembling knees 
When the Freshman flag floats in the breeze 
Picture J\Iiss Johnston with no kodak around 
Taking a picture of Sophs on the ground. 
Picture Margaret E., with Carter small, 
Picture her with no biz at all 
They're pictures no artist can paint. 

Picture our sweet little innocent Anne 
Living alone with journals to scan 
Picture Roy without Alice near, 
Picture them both without any cheer. 
Professor McDiarmid laughing aloud, 
Miss Harris without Mr. McCleod, 
These are pictures no artist can paint. 

Picture our five-footed preacher Hess, 

With his vocabulary growing less, 

Theory of life, and loads of the wind, 

Can such a small body hold such a large mind? 

Picture Mrs. Bourne taking a walk 

When e'er the young men come over to talk. 

Picture of pictures, untrue to life. 

They're pictures no artist can paint. 

Picture a picture without a frame 
But here is a picture just the same. 
Emma Hertzel wearing Dunn's name. 
Missionaries in Africa, gaining much fame. 
Teaching the Negroes how best to live 
If they the joys of life would have. 
It's a very true picture, we must admit — 
A picture an artist can paint. 



The Revelation 

I am the mail box of Phillip's Hall. My permanent place of 
business is on top of the front hall radiator on second floor, 
and many a bold, dark, deed have I witnessed "between the dark 
and the daylight," when the daring college youth fares forth on 
an expedition of plunder or persecution. 

Mine is a responsible position in this institution. I am 
the medium of communication between the tender maidens im- 
prisoned within these walls, and the great world outside. 

To me they give the important charge of carrving- their 
money. Many a dollar, have I held in trust^and never' yei has a 
whisper of scandal about graft or default been heard ag'ainst me. 

Twice a day does my lock yield to the touch of the worths- 
dean, and deliver into their fair hands the messages of love and 
admonition from home and loved ones, and sometimes even 

more tender missives from — ■ but I will not wear\- 

you with a long harangue about myself. Suffice it to say that 
I have acted well my part and never have I divulged a secret, or 
betrayed a trust. But there hangs a mystery about the hall. ' A 
dark deed has been done, and I alone' am 'witness of the per- 
petrators. Suspicion rests on the innocent, and only such an ex- 
tremity could force me to depart from my code of honor, and, 
in defense of the guiltless expose to the eyes of the world this 
extract from a letter delivered to my keeping. 

"It is past bed time, Mamma, but I must just tell you 
what happened here last night. We had a Y. W. social and of 
course went to bed about twelve, p. m. 

Then the Betas came and waked us up. Before we got to 
sleep again something else happened. We heard what sounded 

like the rattle of a coal bucket in the hall. We listened a little 
while and then lieard it again. 

Soon a well-known odor assailed our nostrils. We jumped 
up and ran to the door. We thought we heard the boys running 
down stairs and clapped our hands to let them know' we heard 
them. Then there was a frantic rush for wet towels and we went 
out to investigate. We disposed of the smoke— out summarilly 
through the hall window. 

While we were poking our noses out for a whifif of fresh air, 
the dean came and asked us if we had heard the clapping on the 
first floor. (We room on the third floor, by the way.) I was 
too full of laugh to answer anything so I stuffed my mouth 
full of towel and strangled my mirth as best I could. — ' very — 
diplomatically stammered between giggles, "Yes, — we did hear 
clapping." Finally after several other minor adventures we got 
to bed. But the end was not yet. The young man wdio fires the 
furnace happens to room on the first floor. As fate would have it 

conceived the idea that the clapping was at his 

door and suspected him of setting the smoke-out. So she called 
him in today and squelched the poor little innocent to a fare-ye- 
well ! and his roommate, too. Of course we double-dyed villains 
held our peace. 

Now, Mamma, I'd never dare tell this to a human, but you 
and papa for if this ever came to headquarters my life wouldn't 
be worth a picayune. So here's to bed. 

Your sleepy little girl, 

Bethany, W. Va., April sth, '08.

We were crowded in the chapel. 
Eighteen Seniors vi'ere to speak. 
But a storm was brewing, threafning, 
Started by a Sophomore freak. 

First they tried to rattle Filson ; 
Then on Chappie drew their aim; 
Vaiden's eloquence soared o'er them ; 
Kirk looked down in mild disdain. 

Only three stunts could they think of ; 
They could groan; and they could eat; 
They could follow puppy's custom, 
Ere he sinks to slumber sweet. 

\Mien the cracker box grew empty, 
Soph'mores felt a trifle glum. 
"Break us up to eat forever, 
Bovs, get out your chewing gum."

Once in the dear, dead days beyond recall. 
Ere Potter's glance Pritts-ward beg^an to fall,

But lo, forsooth, is this a Vision seen? 
Softly it weaves itself into a Dream ! 

Just one girl for Potter, 

As the lights burn low. 

When his doubts of "bizzing," 

Swiftly space-ward go. 

Now no more he's weary; 

Sad the day nor long; 

Now for him there's ringing 

That old, sweet song. 

(Oh Bi::z.) 

On bizz, on bizz, on bizz. 

On bizz. on bizz, on bizz, 

On bizz. on bizz. on bizz. on bizz. 

He likes to be — — 

(At the Cross.) 

On the steps, on the steps, 

Where the couples love to sit. 

When the light-plant stands in darkness o'er the hill ; 

If you're there, beware. 

Lest your bliss go up in air. 

And you're put 'off bizz' until 

(Johnny's Not Home from the Fair.) 

Welt}- conies back for the Fair. 


Eaber, Baber, 

Hop ofl your pony. 

For somehow, 

It seems, Pow, 

It won't furnish alimony. 

Was Prof. ^Ic's exam, a surprise? 

On your pony from old — — 

(Mary Had a Little Lamb.) 

Pryor got a leap-year note. 

He'd ne'er got one before ; 

"A girl knows how to answer such ; 

So he knocked on Miss Harris' door. 

(C lions.) 
O. sing me a beautiful song. 
The name of it all know so well. 

(0)1 the Banks of the Old Buffalo.) 

On the banks of the old Buffalo, my boys, 
Where old Bethany ever more shall stand. 
For has she not stood since the time of the flood 
On the banks of the old Buffalo. 


A Monologue 

"No, I haven't a minute's time. In writing my oration, just 
think! only three more weeks! No, I can't think of a subject. 
I thought I'd just write along, and then name it whatever hap- 
pened to fit — 

Did you see Mary Taylor's new hat? I should say it was! 
Big as a parasol. She always has the swellest clothes — but I 
never could see how she got them. They say her father hasn't 
a cent. Oh, yes — her uncle's rich. Yes, she lives with her 
uncle, but — 

Aren't you hungry? Just look in that box there in the 
corner — no — there — there's a lemon pie and some banana — Yes, 
I have to, I'd starve if I didn't. 

Say, did you hear that joke on Jo? She was acting fooHsh 
with Lela the other night after the lights went ofif, and every- 
thing Lela would say, Jo would answer. "What? Yes, mother." 
They were making a good deal of noise I suppose. An-\'way 
someone all of a sudden said "Jo!" and of course she thought it 
was Lela so she said, "What? Yes, mother" and Mrs. Dodd (it 
was JNIrs. Dodd ) just gave her fits. "I can stand for your noise" 
she said, "But I can't stand for your disrespect !" Poor old Jo, 
had to explain and apologize till she was blue in the face. — The 
Betas are going to have a picnic you say ? Won't that be fine. I 
wonder who will get to go? Dolly and Eleanor, and you — you 
old close-mouthed thing! — Well, just you wait till the Sigma Nus 
give^ their "do". I guess so, I have a new dress. So has Molly. 
Her's is pink mull trimmed in lace. Yes, lots of it on the skirt, 
and the waist is bearly covered. Pretty! You ought to see it! 
Yes, mine is real nice — red, and I have gloves and slippers to 
match. Yes, and the cunningest little red poppies for my hair ! 
Mamma got them in New York — they're the very latest! My 
dress is crepe de chine, I had it made at Pogue's. Yes, papa didn't 
think it was necessary, but I told him that when I had such a 
few clothes I wanted them nice. That's not many ! You talk 
exactly like my father. Five suits aren't nearly enough, and I 
told him the same thing. 

Who are you going to the lecture with? By yourself! You 
know you're prevaricating — please tell. I ? I'm going with Tom 
I guess — unless I change my mind. Tom's growing tiresome. 
Maybe you think he's better looking, but I can't see it. In my 
opinion Tom Scott is the handsomest boy in school. And he 
talks beautifully. Oh, Dick is crazy. I told him so just yester- 
da}'. Mary's entirelv too good for the wretch and I refused to 
have anything to do with him. I'll be party to no spitework ! 

I'm going to Wheeling Monday for my hat. Kate and Jo 
are going with me — I always like to have someone help pick 
it out. 

Oh, a sailor of some sort I suppose. I can't wear them at 
all, but one must be in style. Yes, Mace has a prettv little hat — 
becoming, that is, but dreadfully out of fashion ! I'm going to 
get some shoes, too — would you get pumps? I can't keep them 
on, but then it's kind of exciting dropping them ofif your feet 
that way. I did one night coming home from church. My, I 
thought I should die ! Poor old Tom had the awfullest time find^ 
ing it. it was so dark. 

Say, you can't guess who wrote me a biz note — Larry 
Mathers. I don't knov>' yet. Tom's so aggravating I may. It's 
for the lecture. I know I'd be bored to death. I do hate to 
break in a new boy. Tom's so comfortable — <l can sit with my 
back to him all evening and know he won't mind — we understand 
each other so well. Boys are queer creatures, but Tom's all right. 
I expect I'll have to say no to Larry. I hate to, too, because all 
the girls, are wild to go with him. I don't know wh>'. 

Do you like my hair this way? It hurts my head, but that's 
a mere trifle, I suppose I shall get used to it. Well — if you must 
go vou haven't been in for so long I wish you'd stay. Yes, I must 
get to work on m\ oration. It's most tinished, though, I have 
written the introduction, and after that, it just writes itself. 

Good night — no, I don't know where she is. Goodness ! Dia 
you hear that ! Mrs. Dodd is knocking on the ceiling with the 
broom. Go easv^good night !"

Who's Who In The Senior Class 

John Smith — Brother of Miss Eola. 

Eola Smith — Holds the bkie ribbon for Senior orations, and 
stands first in selection for valedictorian. 

Miss Petty— iThe other Senior girl. Constantly shadowed 
by a man named Small. 

Miss Granger — The graduating cla.^s in music. 

Potter — Cupid often repulsed has demanded an uncondi- 
tional surrender. 

Grimes — "My word as a gentleman and a southerner, sah !" 

Duty — ^Biz cases brought to a high degree of efficiency, on 
short notice. Where more than one in a family, all of them 
cheerfully looked after. 

Doley — Came to x-Vmerica from the wilds of Australia to sell 
books and go to school between seasons. 

Chapman — Big and broad and seven credits to make in 
Spring term. 

Filson — As Fresh he was a foot ball star. 
As Soph a star reformer. 
His Jvmior year was spent on biz 
And now at last he's won her. 


Who's Who In The Senior Class — Continued 

McClary — He relieves the high pressure of assumed Senior 
dignity massed beneath his intellectual brow by spasmodic out- 
bursts at Prof. Johnson's humor. Hence his drag. 

Smail — The tallest, lovingest, preachingest, slowest, and un- 
sophisticatedest believer in reciprocity, the College can boast of. 

Vaiden — A little sharp in angle maybe, but oh, his smile is 
wondrous sweet ! 

Woolery — In bed longest, of sleep fondest. 

His nature requires twelve hours. 
In love early, loves (her, her, etc.) dearly, 
With a smile, her face he devours. 

[Quick curtain, change girls.] 

Long — Early in the year Bill organized a biz trust to insure 
his seat in the biz corner. Cruelum dictum iMcLain and Grimes 
stole the girls and left Alligator the empty title. Undismayed by 
such trifles he rides his well broken steed over the difficult Latin 
course and Greek hurdles. 

Dight — The timidest bizite e'er produced in Bethany. 

Blood — A married man from Michigan. 

Hedges — He will be forever grateful to "our worthy Presi- 
dent" for insisting that he study Virgil without a translation. 

Booher — Orator, statesman, and Beau Brumael. 

Mercer — Short but sweet, a fair example of the old adage, 
"Prize packages always done up in small packages." 


Who's Who In The Faculty 

Time forbids tliat we in lengthy song sing the praises of our 
honored president, who is the influential promoter of the street 
car line between Bethany and Wellsburg, which is still coming. 
But who has accomplished great things in the building up and 
renewing of "Old Bethany." 

Our president spends at least nine-tenths and a fraction of 
his time away from the College, perhaps though it is just as 
well for "Biz" thrives and grows fat when he is away. At home 
our president attends Chapel and makes announcements and 
works the garden, abroad he preaches, dedicates churches and 
attends fiery and enthusiastic political meetings. 

To behold dignity assumed in all its gilory, one should 
visit the Psychology or Church History class. Supreme in the 
occupancy of our endowed chair you may there see the Yale 

graduate, mantle himself in his cloak of dignity and smile the 
smile of those who take themselves seriously. 

Occasionally he stoops to humor and after a boisterous 
response of laughter from Filson and JNIcClary, a gurgling chuckle 
is heard seemingly emanating from his shoe tops. This gradually 
rises to his neck, accompanied by jelly-like vibrations of his facial 
muscles, until it is lost in the deep resonance of his guttural tones, 
which announces that dignity once more reigns supreme. 

Coming events usually cast their shadows before them. 
When the boyish face of our Latin Prof, first made its appear- 
ance in chapel and on the base ball field, who would have dreamed 
that behind that ahnost impassive face, lav hidden such inex- 
haustible mines of him:or. 

To be astonishing as well as amusing he once made a descent 
upon the Latin ponies that will be a classic even when Bradford 
loses his appetite and Mrs. Stockdale gives us a good feed. 


Who's Who In The F a c u 1 t y — C o n t i n u e d 

As the monarchess of the Hall Mrs. B. could claim the 
gratitude of a generation. As a lectitrer to culture clubs she has 
earned the praises of generations yet unborn. By her keen appre- 
ciation of spiritual exaltation, produced bv heaven-born aescetic 
minds bordering on the realms of sublimity she has won a halo 
that shall shine as the brightness of the stars forever. 

During a thunder storm this Spring a paper dollar fluttering 
before the bookstore door awoke Prof. Neff, peacefully slumber- 
ing at his home a half mile away. 

Should Roosevelt tire of the strenuous life, where could a 
more fitting substitute be found than in Strenuous Willie of 
Ionia? Magnificently splendid in the strength of his masterful 
manhood, irresistible in his old historic Chicago enthusiasm, 
strenuosity seems to fit him in quite as becoming a fashion as it 
does the dauntless Teddv. 

It is rumored that Prof. Moos was seen to smile while "Hay 
Seeds" was lecturing. 

Miss Ellis says some of her students give evidence of a 
harmful use of translations. 

JMiss Pendleton — Donator of lemons on the morning after 
the night of the orations. 

Robbed of the honor of being the funny man of the facult}' 
from such an unexpected source. Prof. McEvoy for a while 
seemed threatened with physical breakdown. From such a fate 
he was saved b}' his son's basket ball and base ball abilit}^ At all 
athletic games he is a side line star and on the occasion of a dif- 
ficult goal or sensational stop by Smiles his enthusiasm knows no 

Prof. W\'nne — A life given to the good of his fellow man. 

Prof. Workman — Also a member.

.\nd his chief occupation now, is wheeling — a baggage truck. 

The moral of this story is, ye bizites, girls and boys. 
If you ever love a lad or lass, keep quiet your fears and — don't 
tell any of the Faculty.

Perhaps you think these jokes are old. 

And should be on the shelf. 
No doubt they would have sounded better,

Basket Ball Game — A sure victory at home and defeat 

Juniors — Those who, when asked what class they are in, say 
"I graduate next year." In Bethany this year the class is made 
up of youthful preachers who are relieved to a great extent by the 
presence of real girls. 

P. S. — These real girls are the class mates and not the bizzes 
of the aforesaid Juniors. 

Examinations — 'The Prof's, delight ; the student's dread ; the 
time for the separation of the sheep and goats.

The Charge of The Sophomore Class 

The day was bright, the sky was clear, 

And on the campus fair 
No signs of human strife appear. 

No war cloud hovers there. 

The bright rays of the rising sun, 

On campus old and dear,' 
Portray the work of Spring begun, 

And fill the heart with cheer. 

But not alone with joy were filled 

Our hearts upon that day : 
A subtle, stirring, something thrilled. 

Which we must all obey. ' 

And lo ! As if by one consent, 

Or as b}- power supreme. 
The faculty and president 

Appear, as in a dream. 

And flocking in from left to right 

The ladies fair are seen ; 
Each hero brave is filled with might 

By gazing on his queen. 

But why should all in one concourse — 

In such a quiet place — 
From college, town and every source 

i^ppear. with anxious face? 

Ah ! Clasping close the massive base 
Of a stomi-tossed, giant tree. 

With muscles tense and stolid face, 
The Freshman class we see. 

And lo ! Upon a topmost bough 
Their glist'ning colors wave ; 

To keep them there has been the vow 
Of every Freshman brave. 

But now the scene doth change apace ; 

The enemy draw near ; 
We .Sophomores see. and Juniors trace 

When close their lines appear. 

The Seniors wise now council take : 

"If such a force immense 
A down-grade charge on Freshmen make. 

What is the consequence?" 


The Charge of The Sophomore Class— Continued 

"Should Junior forces be combined 
With those already strong ; 

This overwhelming force designed 
Would certainly be wrong." 

Then on the flowery grass they roll, 

iVnd in the voze below, 
Until from body, mind and soul, 

Their strength at last doth flow. 

But heedlessly of Senior lore 
The coming ranks advance ; 

The old-time warriors go before. 
As told in old romance. 

At last, amid the battle's cry 
A single voice is heard : 

"I see no flag twixt earth and sky I 
The conflict was deferred. 

Now for the charge ! Get ready all ! 

That tree we must deprive 
Of Freshman colors, e'er at all, 

Before the noon arrive! 

Then charged they all and charged they well. 

Right down the steep incline. 
Would Freshman one be left to tell 

Their fate by e'er a sign ? 

Ah! Valiant youths of verdant hue! 

Forth spring they one and all ; 
Both Sophomores wise and Juniors too; 

They meet, as cannon ball. 

They met in solemn council there. 

The leaders of the bands, 
And pondered much, in sore despair 

To settle all demands. 

No more doth wave the Freshman flag. 

But neither can Sophs say 
It was by valor, or can brag 

That they did win that day. 

So thus indeed to either side. 

Was victory complete ; 
So evermore whate'er betide, 

With pleasant glance they meet.

O, thou Appendix ^'ermiform, 

With joy I gaze on thee, 
For thou art in a bottle now. 

No longer part of me. 

The close attachment which has been 

Between us all these years 
To think that it is severed now 

Should fill my eyes with tears, 
Yet no regret doth stir my breast; 

No sorrow's in my heart ; 
I yield myself to fate's decree, 

'Twas best that we should part. 
So long I've shielded, sheltered thee, 

My kindness thou hast slighted. 
And now I joy to think that we 

Can ne'er be reunited.

As the dinner bell was ringing at the Hall 
Tlie canine Duke began to howl. 

Prof. Mc. — What are you howling for? You haven't got to 
eat it. 

Anne— Professor, did the last Chapel bell ring this morning? 

Prof. McD.— Yes, I think so, Miss Smith. 

Anne (who had spent Chapel period cramming Latin in 
Prof. Johnson's class room) — Well— ^er— Indeed, Professor, I 
didn't hear it. I was unavoidably detained, and I came as soon 
as possible. 

Prof. McD. (mildly, taking out his chapel record )— Well, 
Miss Smith, I didn't call the roll, but if vou will just dve me 
your Chapel number I'll make a note of it. 

Anne (chagrined)— Give you my number? Do you suppose 
I'd have come here if I'd known you didn't call the roll? Indeed, 
I'll not give you my number. 

And the irate little lady stalked away railing at her adverse

Prof.— I think that was quite far enough. 

She— How kind of vou to bring me these flowers. They

The average profit of agents, counting all who worked, $112.32 a month. Good salesmen make TEN DOLLARS a day 


The movenient is world-wide ; is backed by the nation's 
greatest men. 

Business men and philanthropists throughout the country are 
buying them for their employees and for free distribution. J. J. 
H. Gregory, Marblehead, i\Tass., has bought over 3,000 which he 
has given away. 

Manv have been bought for commencement gifts. 

They have been purchased and placed in over 1,000 Y. JM. 
C. A. libraries, in tlie army posts of the country and the battle- 
ships of the nation. 

They have been purchased by prominent men in the lead- 
ing countries of the world. 

They are used as reference text books in many coUeges 
and universities, 2,300 copies being bought for this purpose in 
one month. 

The man who sells them is in a great environment. He is 
talking head-work, gumption, personality, achievement. He gets 
to be that upon which his mind is fixed. 

The books contain the greatest thoughts of the master- 
minds of the world. The salesman cannot help but reach out and 
touch finger-tips with the world's genius and be transformed into 
a leader of men. 

1 hltlK 01 the Opportunity with the leading business men everywhere, and IpIO.OO 3, U3.y 

We teach our salesmen how to deal with men, how to organize, how to find themselves and develop personality and power. 


Salesmanship is the corner-stone of ever}' profession. It doesn't matter whether it is trading horses, farming, preaching, 
running a bank or a railroad. Every man must learn salesmanship or fail.

^ You hear some talk these 
days about economy; maybe 

you're being economical yourself. It's a good thing; we be- 
lieve in it; but it's best to be clear as to what economy is. 

^ Economy isn't buying cheap stuff because 

it's low priced; nor paying to much for good stuff because it's good 

^ Real economy is measured by comparing what you get 
with what it costs; a question of proportion not price. 

«i That's why you ought to buy our Hart, Schaffner & Marx 
clothes; they're all-wool; perfectly tailored; correct in style. 
You get better value and bigger returns for your money in 
these goods than in any other. 

^ Come and look over our full supply of furnishings— hats, 
ties, gloves, etc., that go to add to the best appearance.
